    For reluctant sale is my 1972 Yamaha XS2.

    I bought this over a year ago as a US import and had it registered for UK roads.
    As it is over 40 years old, it is tax exempt and with the new laws no longer needs an MOT however it does currently have a valid MOT which I had done for peace of mind.

    I’ve tried to keep the bike as original as possible, so many of these bikes are cut up to make them into cafes or trackers, which look great, but this bike was too original to do that to. Matching numbers, original carbs, no dents in the tank.

    I've done about 2000 miles on it now and just got back from a 600 mile trip in France. The bike ran perfect the whole time.

    I've done a ton of work to this bike.
